Demi Lovato’s Biggest Social Media Moments of 2016 in Honor of Her 24th Birthday
Happy 24th birthday to the most honest celeb on Twitter!
Whether she’s commenting on Instagram pictures that throw shade at other celebs or giving us another newsworthy Twitter rant, Demi Lovato has been nothing but honest on social media in 2016.
We’ve always known Demi was a badass, but this year the singer has shown more than ever that she does not give a f*ck about what others have to say.
Here are her biggest, boldest social media moments of 2016 in honor of her 24th birthday:
1. The shade thrown at Taylor Swift’s response to Kesha’s court ruling
Back in February, Demi was not pleased was Taylor Swift’s silence over Kesha’s case against Dr. Luke. Swift donated $250,000 to help Kesha’s legal battle, but Demi still wasn’t having it. She tweeted the following, which was a clear subtweet at Swift:
She kept the rant going on Instagram where she left comments on a T. Swift fan page saying, “Not everyone has 250k to give… At least I speak up about s–t that’s uncomfortable to talk about rather than trying to be politically correct 24/7.” Yikes.
2. The Nicki Minaj Met Gala pics
Feud rumors ensued when Nicki Minaj posted a Met Gala photo on Instagram which featured Demi but neglected to tag Demi in the post. Demi posted a Snapchat to ask why she wasn’t tagged and later posted her own Met Gala picture with Nicki that only added fuel to the fire. Demi, naturally, took to twitter to clarify:
3. Her Wilmer Valderrama breakup-post
Demi’s honesty isn’t always shade. Demi posted this lovingly-worded Instagram photo to announce her breakup with boyfriend of six years, Wilmer Valderrama.
4. The Mariah Carey meme drama (and the brief Twitter hiatus)
All hell broke loose when Demi commented on a “Mariah Carey over Ariana Grande” meme saying, “You got it the wrong way around honey.” After getting some backlash for her seemingly anti-Mariah stance, she ranted on Twitter and then abruptly left:
But luckily, after one short day, she returned.
5. Her Twitter rant on celebrity culture
Demi made her return to the Twitter world with yet another rant, this time calling out celebrity obsessions. (Perhaps a more relevant example than FBI’s most wanted list would have helped her thesis.)
6. Her sly support for Calvin Harris’ Twitter rant
7. Her participation in the Kim and Kanye vs. Taylor Swift feud
Demi threw some shade at Taylor yet again, this time liking a tweet that said, “I love Kim Kardashian” in the midst of the #KimExposedTaylor frenzy.
8. Her controversial Zika virus Snapchat
Demi recently angered Twitter users after she posted a Snapchat video of her mom making joking comments about the Zika virus. Demi took to Twitter to apologize for the insensitive video.
Despite the controversy, the social media queen ensured us that she’s here to stay:
